    Description

    Confederate General Daniel Smith Donelson Signature, 3" x 2". The nephew of Andrew Jackson and brother of Andrew Jackson Donelson (President Jackson's personal secretary) has written, "Respectfully/ your Obt. Svt./ D. S. Donelson/ Brig. Genl. Cmmdr." A popular Tennessee politician (Fort Donelson was named in his honor), Daniel Donelson retired as speaker of the Tennessee House of Representatives to volunteer in the Tennessee militia where he served as brigadier general until his death from disease near Knoxville in the spring of 1863. Donelson's very scarce signature has been excised from a larger document. Fine.
